About the book

How can learning initiatives contribute to employee and organizational success? This is a practical introduction to the principles of designing and delivering effective training and L&D programmes.

Providing practical diagnostic tools, scenarios and case studies, Learning and Development demonstrates how to link learning to strategic business goals and explores both the benefits and complexities associated with L&D. It features guidance in essential areas including identifying L&D needs, selecting the most appropriate types of intervention and the processes of measurement and evaluation.

This updated third edition of Learning and Development features a new chapter on designing learning interventions, covering the impact of virtual learning and communities of practice. There will also be guidance on making learning and development strategies accessible and inclusive for all employees, and using wellbeing as a measurement of effectiveness. Online resources include extended case studies, an annotated literature review and self-evaluation tools.

The HR Fundamentals are a series of succinct, practical guides for students and those in the early stages of their HR careers, endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
